$611,000 at Mediation for High-Speed Rear-End in Illinois

In May 2008, a man from Lake Villa, Illinois, was stopped in traffic when the defendant rear-ended his vehicle at a high rate of speed. As a result of the collision, our client had neck and back pain and sought many months of physical therapy with little success, subsequently having surgery on both areas. He has since made a near-full recovery.

After the filing of a lawsuit and aggressive litigation, the insurance company knew it had to pay.

During a mediation session, Attorneys Vito J. Manicioto of Hupy and Abraham in Gurnee and Timothy W. Schelwat of Hupy and Abraham in Milwaukee were able to secure a settlement of over $600,000 for our injured client.
